A statement clutch bag with a hole in it. Made of 100% vegan leather.
You wouldn't expect it, but I designed this bag for practical reasons. The requirements:
It had to be a clutch, cool enough to wear at a fashion show
It should be capable of hanging on my bike's steering wheel safely (ever been to Amsterdam...?)
I should be able to hold a wine glass in one hand and shaking hands with the other

100% artificial, vegan leather with a rubbery feel and soft lining.

Designer's Note: Being educated as a graphic designer, I tried to restrain my love for designing fashion many years. I actually prefer to say ‘wearables’ instead of fashion – the word ‘fashion’ evokes images of mass production and other sides of the fashion world I do not want to engage with. What I want, and what made me swap trades all the same, is to design wearable products or pieces of art that are not linked to a particular collection for a particular season of a particular year. I design, make and sell them as long as you want me to. No surpluses, no unfair labor – only joy.
Damage Playground offers a variety of garments by mainly new generation Dutch designers working with alternative forms of production thereby taking care of people, product and nature. Low quantities and handmade with the utmost care.
